Bless the Beekeepers.  Dealing with venomous insects takes courage, patience, dedication and a desire to be with nature.

Wow, that's crazy!  I wonder if its odd appearance is at least in part due to it being decompressed so fast from being hauled up from that deep in the ocean.  Sort of like the blobfish, which looks really quite normal when it's in its natural depth.  I found a picture of a live one on iNaturalist, provided the fish is being identified correctly.  Chimaera montrosa, the rabbit fish or the rat fish, is what the news story said it was.

I come from under the hill, and under the hills and over the hills my paths led.  And through the air, I am she that walks unseen.

I would agree about decompression. 
totally anecdotal; I usually have to loosen my belt a notch when I when I go up a few thousand feet to play in the mountains.
Winter is coming.

I can't say I hate the government, but I am proudly distrustful of them.
